, it is not the s&p 500 which trades only in part as a function of profits and often buffeted by unforeseeable events. second, even if you're relating to the earnings component to our own gdp and you find the earnings trajectory waning, how about the other component of owning so many stocks. the dividend yield. yes, it might be possible the profits are peaking, but tomorrow the federal reserve's going to talk about what it'll do to stimulate the economy. and we'll hear that part of ben bernanke's plan is to keep interest rates low, but perhaps, even, i heard this chatter, 2015. that means three more years of making no more than a percent or a percent and a half on your cds, lousy, and even less for that money fund you're hiding in. meanwhile, we know hundreds of relatively safe stock markets that yield north of 3%, 4%, 5%. and if you don't own them, think about it, you might be missing out on three years of that kind of terrific income, three years. further, there are the mechanics of the money management business to focus on as having been a money manager, i think i can live thi

, dow getting back 49 points, s & p sliding 4.5%, nasdaq climbing 6.5%, september turned out to be terrific for the averages! making this the seventh month of the year where the s & p has finished higher and the eighth month of gains for the dow. holy cow. if anybody is wondering, this market is exactly what a bull market actually looks like. s&p 500 rallied 2.4% in september capping off a glorious third quarter. where the index gained close to 6%. not to mention the fact it's up about 15% for the year. 17% when you factor in dividend payments. i know there are a lot of negatives out there. a lot of total legitimate worries. yet these fears have been trumped by the continued optimism that comes from believing the world central banks will turn the tide of slowing global growth. you never want to fight the fed. i learned that in 1980 when i first started taking down some nice-sized positions for my, well, let's say to be able to pay for school. but you really don't want to fight the fed. you don't want to fight the fed when it's teamed up with the the european central bank and hopefu

dow finished 21 points lower, s&p sank 2.22%, and the nasdaq declined .60%. apple today failed to take out its all-time high, except this all-time high came three days ago. down $9.30. in stark contrast to the fresh high made by its plus-$700 neighbor google. fresh high, fresh high after multiple years. of course this $700 hook is just a device to capture your attention. as google is worth about 245 billion while apple at 691 is worth 648 billion. remember, the actual dollar price doesn't matter as much as the price to earnings multiple. the way to compare apples to apples so to speak when you're comparing apples to googles is to look at that p/e ratio on next year's numbers. what's the market paying for the future profit streams of the two companies? google selling at 15 times next year's earnings. apple selling at 13 times. when you stloe in the fact the analysts believe google will grow revenue slightly faster than apple, i'm calling that a push. all that said, if you were to put a gun to my head and ask me which one i like more at these prices, i would say first, put the gun down.

on earnings relative to the relative stops in the s&p 500. while the weakness will most likely continue for a bit given how hot they've been, this is day one of a bit of a selloff, i think they remain good places not to trade but to invest in. you can keep saving, look, this rally is entirely based on hope. if i heard that ten times today, i'm not kidding, hope that the german supreme court will go with the program. while i don't disagree these decisions will matter, and they will matter, the german supreme court matters tremendously, the rallies and the vast majority of stocks i follow don't have much to do with hope at all and everything to do with value, dividend, earnings and sales momentum. that's why you can buy them on this macro-inspired weakness and not sell them. i don't fear the future as much as so many others who think the whole move is predicated on promises, promises that are made to be broken. it's just not true. the move, it's based on facts. let's go to bonnie in my home state of new jersey, please. bonnie. >> caller: hey, jim, thanks for taking my call today.
